Hererra, closing the barn door after the horses have gone.

Secretary of State Mary Herrera's incompetence and corruption were the subject of a letter of resignation recently submitted by one of her subordinates. The employee, in his resignation, wrote that her administration was the most "crooked organization" he has ever worked in.

Understandably, she doesn't want us to see the letter.

But, the letter is already out. The Journal has a copy.

If it is already out, it is only a matter of time until it will be in the hands of everyone that wants a copy. Never the less, she is fighting to keep in under wraps, going so far as to claim exception under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, in response to a request filed by blogger Heath Haussamen, link.

When we have the letter in one hand, and the NMIPRA in the other, we can compare them and determine for ourselves whether the law has been deliberately misread in order to provide herself cover.

She has turned a one day news cycle into one which will last for as long as she continues to try to hide the letter from public knowledge.

That in itself, speaks to her competence.

I like the picture of the horse you attached to this blog entry. She should be advertising for "Mane & Tail" shampoo.
